A half-wolf, half-husky named Balto gets a chance to become a hero when an outbreak of diphtheria threatens the children of Nome, Alaska in the winter of 1925. He leads a dog team on a 600-mile trip across the Alaskan wilderness to get medical supplies. The film is based on a true story which inspired the Iditarod dog sled race.

At the end of the movie, when the sled stops, the doctor rushes out, and the lantern is on top of the crate. In the next shot, the crate is being opened, and someone is holding the lantern. Also, no bottles of medicine are missing, even though one fell out and broke in the ice cave. Furthermore, the crate is intact, even though one of the sides was broken just minutes earlier. See more
